During the Guthrie County Board of Supervisors regular meeting on March 21, the supervisors discussed the proposal to enter into a service agreement with Neapolitan Labs in Des Moines to create a new website for the county. Supervisor Maggie Armstrong shared that, if approved, it’s expected to take Neapolitan Labs three to four months to complete the work. She also explained that the county could pay all at once or spread the cost over multiple years. The total cost is expected to be around $16,000.

Supervisor Brian Johnson asked about consistency and control over what each department would post on the website.

“Each department will have oversight over the content,” said Armstrong. “They will have somewhat limited determination over the format because we want the look and feel to be the same, but we can definitely put some parameters in place.”

The supervisors voted unanimously to approve the service agreement with Neapolitan Labs and to spread the cost out, with half being paid this fiscal year and the remainder in the next fiscal year.

The next regular meeting of the board will be Tuesday, March 26. The public is welcome. Attendees may participate in person or by calling 323-792-6123 and inputting conference ID 547029216#.
